eLoop is a proud member of the CEOs For Sustainability and has completed the Southwestern Pennsylvania Sustainable Business Compact. The compact provides a rigorous, peer-reviewed framework for businesses to advance and publicly demonstrate their corporate sustainability achievements.
The Southwestern Pennsylvania Sustainable Business Compact enables the region’s businesses to voluntarily engage in sustainability practices that simultaneously advance their economic and governance performance, the environment, and the social fabric of their communities. Businesses that incorporate sustainable practices into their operations and commit to a regional sustainability orientation stand out as valuable contributors to Southwestern Pennsylvania’s sustainable development. As more businesses apply sustainability in their operations and community responsibility, the cumulative benefits produce more business success and, in turn, a stronger region poised to thrive and continue its legacy of innovation.
Sustainability reporting enables businesses to better understand the link between their sustainability management practices and their long-term financial performance. It is a tool for setting goals, managing progress, communicating impacts to key stakeholders, and gaining recognition. According to the G&A Institute, 82 percent of the S&P 500 published a sustainability report in 2016.
